, this morning, the fbi is trying to track down a large amount of money stolen from an airplane that landed at philadelphia international airport. the aircraft came from dallas, but it wasn't until the cargo reached the federal reserve that officials realized that a lot of the funds were missing. the fbi says the stolen money was brand-new, $100 bills. they were not scheduled to be put into circulation until next year. certainly have a new look with them there. let's go now to your weekend weather. expect some brilliant sunshine here in new york city. which seems to contrast to this harbinger of winter. that's the 30 rock ice rink. it opened officially for the season just moments ago, everyone. i'd like to be out there but i'm going to stay here for awhile. weather channel meteorologist maria larosa is joining us with the forecast. >> alex, good morning. we had a major storm system beginning to wrap up in through the central plains. you can see with the clouds and the showers and thunderstorms already beginning to develop. this is the area that will likely see severe weather throughout the

's understand, there was no protest and cameras reveal that and the state department, the fbi and others have that video. >> democrats charged the hearing itself was politically motivated and that republicans have left them out of the investigation. here was ranking member elijiah couple krchl ummings. >> we need to carefully investigate allegations that have been made over the past week and we need to run them to the ground before we jump to conclusions. we should not be about the business of drawing concludes and then looking for the facts. >> for more on today's hearing and the politics behind it we're joined by capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. i guess the fundamental question is, not just the motive, people are partisan by nature in politics, but the idea of something really being covered up here. how did they proceed there today and get anywhere with that? >> the republicans who are running this committee really wanted to get at why was the government giving out information they now acknowledge was incorrect? the video you talked about was somehow the spark that set this off.

along with the fbi have launched a criminal investigation into the democratic lawmaker's finances, including possible misuse of funds monitored by congress. more on all of these stories throughout the next hour. >>> first, though, right now mitt romney is heading to a rally in lebanon, ohio. that rally set to begin in about an hour. the event taking place at a restaurant actually owned by ohio senator rob portman's family. just wrapped up in portsmouth where he talked about the presidential debate. he also hammered the obama campaign for continuing the use of "sesame street" references. >> in times like this, what is he talking about? saving big bird. when i'm president, i'm going to help save the american family and get good jobs for every american. . >> nbc's peter alexander is on the bus with the romney campaign, traveling to that 5:45 event. he is live on the phone with us. pete, this second rally of the day in ohio, i imagine we are probably going to hear a great deal of what we heard at the first, no doubt. >> craig, you're exactly right. the religious trying to hammer home

why -- you know, they just now like 20 days later sent the fbi in, because they said it was too dangerous to send the fbi to benghazi to investigate this. they provided no security. they let their guard down. an ambassador -- i'm playing it out. an ambassador dies because of that. they got one warning after another and ignored it, and so now i guess it makes sense for them. i'm doing this on the fly. now it makes sense to say, there was never any protests. we could is never known this it happened, so it just happened spontaneously and who could have saved the ambassador's life? i guess, willie, that's why they're doing it. >> we're going to hear more. the darrell issa hearings begin today and we hear from the head of security in libya who said he sent cables, one in march and july asking for additional security there because of the threat he believed there was and did not get a response. >> all right. let's go to politico. >> keyword we've been using, we employed the word four or five times in the last two minutes. we guess, we guess. we don't know. >> politico. >> they won't sa

pickering, a former statesman leading this, looking into it, the fbi has an investigation in addition to this congressional one. it's key to understand. because this was a tragedy. >> okay, so joe by your assessment did somebody in the state department make a mistake or was this a series of mistakes in several places, or can this be classified as a mistake? >> i think it's too early to call this a mistake. we're living in a volatile world. the middle east is in turmoil. and the middle east across the region for decades has consistently received threats at its embassies at its missions, its consulates. this is a tragedy. and the state department is the first agency interested, most interested in protecting its personnel overseas. but to determine now in the heat of the oversight and understanding what happened on the ground and the information gathering, it's still too early to tell. i really hope that we can respect the outcome of the legitimate investigations that are under way before we determine this. >> okay. was vice president biden right when he responded to criticism by pointin
